1 - Otsuka Ai
i love her music on first. but i like all in her. she is beautiful . she is a talented composer and lyricist. when she sing in live she put lot of feelings into her interpretation. her personality is particularly interesting because she seems to be so difficult to understand and she seems simple at the same time. she loves doing music and we can see this.she arrived to became a mature women even in her music . her music evoluted at the same time as Ai-chin evoluted and that's pretty good . She is my God i think i just can't explain how much i love her.

2 - aiko
she has all my respect because she is in world of j-pop for 12 years now and she is not over-present . when you see her for the first time with her little 1m52 you don't expect this women can have this kind of very powerful voice. she is a very very good lyricist and composer . she is very simple and her fans can talk with her with simplicity she sings perfectly on live . for me she is even better on live than on her studios versions. Plus, she is absolutely beautiful one of the most beautiful women in Japan. a natural beauty

3 - Amuro Namie
for me she is the true queen . everybody seem to consider Ayumi like the queen but Amuro Namie was here before her and if she hadn't took a break for her child Ayumi probably never became this monster of J-pop. even if i love Ayu very much , Namie-sama is better for me . Her music is so much powerful ... i can't stop dancing when i listen to it and the rythm is always perfect. she has a particular voice not very high like lot of japanese singers... more low and i love it. i watched her BEST FICTION TOUR again and again she is a MONSTER how can she dancing and singing like that ? she is one of the best singer on live that i have never seen

4 - Nishikido Ryo
it seems to be a little strange no? but i love him soooo much i think anyone can't imagine how much i love him. his voice is so smoothly and my ears are always melted when i listen to him ( it's weird when you read this no? but it's true) Laughing recently i felt in love with his interpretation of "ordinary" on last NEWS concert and his cover of TOKIO" Akireru kurai bokura wa negaou". but i listen to all other songs from him i'm totally in love with ... i love him i love his voice . and plus he is a very good actor. Love

5- Kanjani8
They are funny. They DO music. they know how to PLAY music. and i love it. Subaru has THE VOICE of all Johnny's entertainement. For me he probably should to sign on Avex trax haha. I love them that's all their concert are gorgeous. They write lyrics and music. The only MUSIC BAND in Johnny's Entertainement imo.

6 - Hamasaki Ayumi
i love her because of her voice i think . and because of My song for xx to I am era . because now i don't like what she does .... she is Ayumi and i will always love her but when i listen to Dearest , Still alone or YOU (my tree fav songs from ayu) and when i listen to BALLAD , you were or even her last album Next Level i'm terribly disappointed and nostalgic about her debut.one thing is sure , she's absolutely gorgeous the word "classy" was invented for her !

7 - Tamaki Hiroshi
what can i say about him ? listen to him you will quickly understand why i love him . his voice amazed me one of the most amazing men. plus he is gorgeous and he's my fav actor . but truely his songs are very goods ... his last album is an invitation to traveling ! My fav album are his two first Ripple and Bridge Love Love

8 - Rainie Yang
that was the first asian artist i loved and i will always love her for brought me into asian world . she's perfect she can play , sing . and her last album was a big surprise for me we can see all her voice capability. like ai-chin she became mature in her music to "Ai mei" to " Rainie love" i can feel a big changement and i love it so much . she's always cute and seems to be a very funny and good person. she's always smiling and that's so cute.

9 - SNSD
I love them .... that's all . i love their cute attitudes they are beautiful . theyr are a very good dancers and singers . even they can be considered like not good persons because of all this things they could says or do . i will love them for a long time i think . that's the only one Korean Girl's band i love truely . my fav is Jessica lot of people don't like her and i understand why but me i love her so much . Love . their songs are always very catchy and i love it.



10 - I don't know i think i don't have 10 fav artist . i will think about that and maybe will find one.
finally found . it's COLDPLAY .... i love them for 9 years now . i saw them in Paris and it was the most beautiful, amazing, wonderful , gorgeous concert i seen in my life ! i cried when i saw them arrived on stage. i just can't explain why i love them ... Chris martin voice, their lyrics their music. it's like Ai-chin it's not something i could explain .

^ OK, OK I've added some descriptions Wink , but don't expect 10 favourites, because while I like plenty of others only these 5 qualify for me Tongue

1. Ai Otsuka - I love everything about Ai, she has the vividly beautiful voice, sings with pure passion, there is absolute artistry in her lovely lyrics, her live performances are simply stunning and I've run out of adjectives and alliterations to describe her Laughing Laughing

2. FictionJunction YUUKA - I love all of the music Yuuki Kajiura has produced, but the unique style she has used together with the combination of the vocal talents of Yuuka Nanri, is the absolute pinnacle of her work. Love Love The only artist apart from Ai that I can say I absolutely love every song Giggle

3. Aya Ueto - Haha, yes I'm sure everyone knows by now highly I regard Aya Love Love , I just love the emotion and enjoyment she generates when she has sings Boogie Boogie haha every time I hear Ai no tame ni, I just get a tingle at the back of my neck and a huge surge of emotion Smile Giggle

4. My Little Lover - My most recent musical discovery, I love her voice, and how she has used it in her music. Her Acoakko versions of her songs are some of the nices pieces I have ever heard Giggle Giggle

5. Mika Nakashima - Ahhhh Mika, what can I say, one of my earliest jpop entries and totally blew me away. She has a kind of pendulem effect on me though, some of her songs I absolute love and some I just can't listen to Laughing . I think she's swinging back into me now though Love Laughing

Ok..my turn to say my top 10 Giggle


1. Ai Otsuka: Do I really need to explain why? Laughing She's awesome, her songs are composed in a way no one else does, and her lyrics are beautiful..she's also the best live performer ever! Giggle She's the artist that inspired me to take music as my career and I'm really thankful for that Love Love

2. L'Arc~en~Ciel Amazing band, love all their songs, the composition is amazing and the styles are very different. The bassline on their songs is one of the best I've heard xD

3.YUI She was one of my first japanese artists, also the first japanese artist whose music I learned to play in guitar, I know all of her songs in guitar Giggle Her voice is very smooth and I love it xD

4. Kanon Wakeshima: I've always loved the sound of cellos Love and along with music by Mana and mysterious lyrics make the perfect combination.

5.ELLEGARDEN Their songs are great, and even if their lyrics are kinda confusing, the music kinda helps me feel better when I am sad or angry xD

6.MALIZE MIZER: Their incorporation of Barroque and Classical sounds makes them a unique band. The guitar duets are amazing, some of their songs are masterpieces Giggle

7.Hitomi Takahashi: Ashley made me listen to her again Giggle I love her voice and her rock style, and her song "Mou Hitotsu no Yoake" is one of my favorite songs ever, that song means a lot to me because of...some personal reasons Laughing

8. ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION: Nice melodies, nice lyrics, awesome guitar riffs xD Their songs are really different than the normal standards of a song, I just love them Giggle

9. Orange Lounge: Jazz Love Bossa Love Fusion Love French Love do I need to say more? Laughing

10.ROUND TABLE: Love their jazzy and soul style, the male and female vocalists have both smooth voices Love composition is amazing Love Love

Giggle


i read it... :I


here's my list

my top 10

1. Hitomi Takahashi - obviously Tongue she was already my favorite before I discovered Ai-chan, and she is what truly got me hooked on jpop/rock. i love all of her songs, they each have their own beautiful meaning and i can find a way to relate to each of them. and her voice is very unique and powerful. her music always makes me feel better when im sad. i find my self extremely addicted to her sound and style and i cant wait to hear what she will sing next. Love

2. Ai Otsuka - it is a very tight race between 1 and 2... i discovered Ai-chan completely by accident, but immediately fell in love with her singing style and unique tunes and lyrics. i find lots of inspiration in her music and i particularly love her ballads, you can really hear her powerful voice and feel the emotions of the song in them. Love

3. Shibasaki Kou - her voice is very lovely and addicting. And her songs are very beautiful. i cant help but sing along with them, even if i dont know all the words yet Love

4. UVERworld - one of the only male Japanese bands that I can stand. i dont know why but I find that male Japanese artists just dont have very appealing singing voices, but UVERworld is very different. i cant help but listen to them. their lyrics have deep meaning whether the song sounds fun or serious. and i just love their sound Love

5. KOKIA - her lyrics are so beautiful. Love and her voice is so soothing and hypnotic that you just want to listen to more. i especially love her songs Tenshi, so much love for you, life goes on, and You. they give me goosebumps and butterflies simultaneously.

6. Utada Hikaru & Angela Aki - these two both rank together. these two really introduced me into the world of jpop. both are very talented in their own right. they have very beautiful songs, and equally beautiful voices.Utada's Hikari is a classic. and Angela's This Love, Your Love Song, and Eyes on Me are pure beauty.

7. BEAT CRUSADERS - ah my lovely BECR. i love their songs, they are very refreshing and fun. their songs always make me laugh and have me dancing and singing right along with them. not to mention, for guys without faces they are pretty hot especially Hidaka and Kubota Love Love Love

8. ayaka - i just love her powerful voice, and touching songs. her vice is so unique and refreshing amongst so many artists that just sound the same with their predictable lyrics

9. Yuna Ito - ENDLESS STORY need I say more? haha. such a wonderful, powerful song, and she has very beautiful ballads, Trust You, miss you, and Truth, and her other songs, and her voice is very good. Love

10. Kawabe Chieko & Siori - two artists that i believe deserve much more recognition that they receive. they both have some very wonderful songs, and very good voices. Kawabes Sakura Kiss, Be Your Girl, Mama Made, and Kizuna-iro are very touching songs and i was saddened to hear that she had stopped singing. and Sioris Love song, Heart Flower, Isshou Kenmei Koi wo Shite, Futari no Yakusoku and Boku no Shinjiru Michi are very good. Isshou Kenmei Koi wo Shite always gives me butterflies. once again i have to thank mango for introducing me to her music. and i look forward to hearing from the two of them in the future.
